River Cottage Wedding Photographer.
Ahh the sheer beauty of autumn weddings! Martha & Anthony’s wedding was almost a year ago, in early November 2021 and it was an absolutely glorious day, spun in autumn gold. The weather was warm enough for the couple to have their wedding ceremony in the gardens of River Cottage, which were at their peak of autumn beauty, kissed in the golden rays of winter light.
Martha wore a rose coloured sequinned wedding dress, the perfect colour for the season. She bought the dress on Etsy and it was made by a Ukrainian dress maker called Stylish Bride Accessories “I knew I didn’t want something white and I knew that wanted something that would be sparkly at night as the sun went down, so I searched for gold sparkle gowns and found this company who make dresses to measure.” This was accessorised with an awesome personalised leather jacket, painted with a crescent moon, flowers and stars. The celestial theme was continued, with a crescent moon on their wedding cake and a hair comb with little stars. Perfect for the season of sparkles and fireworks! Martha’s wedding bouquet and matching flowers were also perfect for the season too – incredible bouquets of red, pink and yellow flowers by Wild Alice.
Autumn is my favourite season so this wedding was a dream to photograph and Martha & Anthony were so lovely, it was a real pleasure to spend the day with them. Their wedding was recently featured on Love My Dress. You can view more images from and read the full feature on their blog here. The couple left me a fantastic review on the blog too – thanks so much guys 🙂
“We chose Emma Stoner as our photographer. We found her on River Cottage’s website when we were looking for wedding suppliers and fell in love with the candid nature of her photos she had taken at another wedding there. It was great to know she had done other weddings at the venue, which meant she would already know the best places to get great shots, and we wanted our wedding photos to be as unstaged as possible – which is exactly what we ended up with.
We had a few phone calls with Emma and got on really well, which filled us with confidence for the day. When we met the morning of the wedding, it was so lovely to put a face to the name and voice, and we barely noticed Emma taking photos throughout the day. When we received the full album, there were so many times when we both said “I didn’t know she took a picture here!” because she was moving around completely unnoticed and really captured the joy and emotion on people’s faces.
When we went up onto the hill to take photographs of just the two of us, Emma made us feel really comfortable and the end result was wonderful.
We would absolutely recommend Emma to anyone getting married – she has an innate talent for capturing moments in such an intimate way and the style of her photography is just so beautiful. We often look back through our photos, they mean the world to us.”
